Since some MasterServers are down you can edit your UT to show all servers (about 600)



- start a text editor , e.g. notepad
- find/load Unrealtournament.ini into the texteditor
- (located in the folder "System" inside your Unrealtournament folder )
- the Unrealtournament.ini has several sections
- each section starts with [section.name]
- in the Unrealtournament.ini search and change:

Search for section: [UBrowserAll]

[UBrowserAll]
ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=unreal.epicgames.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
ListFactories[1]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=master0.gamespy.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
bHidden=True
bFallbackFactories=True
ListFactories[2]=


Change it to:

[UBrowserAll]
ListFactories[0]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=master.333networks.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
ListFactories[1]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=master.noccer.de,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
ListFactories[2]=UBrowser.UBrowserGSpyFact,MasterServerAddress=utmaster.epicgames.com,MasterServerTCPPort=28900,Region=0,GameName=ut
bHidden=True
bFallbackFactories=False


-make sure there is no such line anymore:
ListFactories[2]=

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Search for section: [UBrowser.UBrowserMainClientWindow]

[UBrowser.UBrowserMainClientWindow]

bKeepMasterServer=False


Change it to

[UBrowser.UBrowserMainClientWindow]

bKeepMasterServer=True

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Find in section: [Engine.GameEngine]




[Engine.GameEngine]

ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=unreal.epicgames.com MasterServerPort=27900
ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master0.gamespy.com MasterServerPort=27900
ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master.mplayer.com MasterServerPort=27900


Change it to

[Engine.GameEngine]

ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=utmaster.epicgames.com MasterServerPort=27900
ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master.333networks.com MasterServerPort=27900
ServerActors=IpServer.UdpServerUplink MasterServerAddress=master.noccer.de MasterServerPort=27900

Re: How to fix master0.gamespy.com Master Server down

Post by uti » Fri Dec 18, 2015 5:38 pm

hi

that might also require you to set the ut.ini as read-only after you change the lines in there.

and this fix actually works without the need to edit the ut.ini:
just add this to the hosts file in windows(/etc/hosts in linux?):
65.112.87.186 master0.gamespy.com
(it probably resolves the server to master2.qtracker.com)
and this server actually does not add any Tactical Ops servers to my UT search list...
